I've got an awesome husband, (AnUpwardSpiral) and he's not going anywhere. I'm not looking for "a bit on the side", and I'm not looking for cheaters.
It's called ethical non-monogamy. Deal with it. Or don't. Who am I to tell you how to live your life? I'm just a stranger on the Internet.
I'm overweight. I'm not a ham planet or anything, but "slim" is not a word that can be used to describe me. I can definitely turn you into a booty-lover, though.
I'm also actually straight. I know that might come as a shock, since every poly lady is assumed to be at least a little bisexual. Unicorn hunters should look elsewhere.
Ultimately, I'm looking for something a bit more substantive than a hook up buddy. Whether it's 3 days or 3 years, I'm a feels junkie. If "playing it cool" is your standard protocol, then we're probably not going to have a good time. If someone being excited to spend time with you scares you, then I'm your worst nightmare.
More seriously, I've found myself in a job that has morphed into an actual career. Not sure how I feel about that, but the money's good.
Also, as someone raised (though, not born) in Maryland, I'm probably spending a non-negligible amount of my time putting Old Bay on things.
And as someone born in Texas (with a Texas native for a mother, and 4 years of college in Houston under my belt), I'm probably spending a non-negligible amount of time hunting down decent BBQ in the area.
Puns and portmanteaus. And punmanteaus.

I have what I affectionately call "Resting Eeyore Face". This is similar to "Resting Bitch Face", but instead of looking angry, I just look thoroughly unimpressed.

Staying in and watching something on Netflix/Hulu with my husband and his girlfriend. Or going out to karaoke or a local gig. I'm an ambivert, so staying in or going out are equally enjoyable options for me.
Beards cause me to make bad decisions.
Case in point: I let a juggalo touch my boobs in exchange for letting me touch his beard. Worth it - that thing was epic.
New: I have my nipples pierced.
You enjoy jokes involving Jesus, your mom, your face, your mom's face, or bodily functions. Or Jesus performing bodily functions unto your mom's face.
You want to discuss a finer point of my profile, or you found a typo (how embarrassing).
You're poly or poly-friendly.
You understand what BDSM is, but don't require it or try to force a dynamic.
You have a nice face. I'm a sucker for a nice face.
You have a nice beard. I'm a sucker for a nice beard.
You're lit'rally Ron Swanson.
